(laughter) mr. president, what kind of message does this send the kids? what do parents say when their child looks up with those big wet eyes and ask: "mommy, why do things have to not die?" this is the weakening of our democracy! elections have consequences, sir! next you're going to tell me that the losing miss america contestants get to live! (laughter) well, nation, i for one am not going to stand for it. that's why i'm sitting. also why i've started a petition at colbertnation.com calling on president obama to live up to the duties of his office and execute caramel the turkey.

of the insured person. the other thing is this website. we've heard that the, you know the obama administration basically declared victory on the website yesterday. they say it's now working. well they fixed the front end of the website where consumers go and sign in and can do a little shopping. there's a back end of the website as well in which it communicates with other federal agencies like the irs. it determines whether someone is eligible for a subsidy and if so, how big it is and then it tells the insurance company. that part isn't working. regardless of what you heard about the other parts of the website, that part isn't working. >> not working or not built? i'm reading it is not finished. >> it is not built yet. not as if it has a bunch bugs. ttey haven't finished it. we're days, a few weeks from this needing to work. what happened is, the insurance companies said wait a minute, if the website can't calculate subsidies. government can't give us money, are we supposed insure people for nothing? what happened is, the obama administration said well look, if you estimate what you will pay
with interpreting them. the obama administration has ignored the carefully balanced separation of powers and unilaterally granted itself the extraconstitutional authority to amend laws and suspend enforcement. this raw assertion of authority those well beyond the executive presidentted to the and specifically violates the constitution's command that the care thatis to take the laws be faithfully executed. encroachment's into congress's sphere of power is not a transgression that should be taken lightly. as english historian edward gibbon's famously observed the romanthe follow empire, the principles of a free constitution are irrevocably lost when legislative power is dominated by executive. although the president's actions may not yet amount to the taking theowers over legislative power, they are certainly undermining the rule is at the center of our constitutional design. ,rom obamacare to immigration the current administration is picking and choosing which laws to enforce. conferstitution does not on the president the executive authority to disregard the powersion of unilaterally wait
dislikes it. the obama administration has been equally asserted in the round of domestic policy routinely making and runs around congress through broad claims. limits. president obama is the first president since richard nixon to ignore and enacted law simply because he disagrees with it. in place of the checks and balances established by the constitution, president obama has proclaimed that "i refuse to take no for an answer." and "where congress won't act, i will." throughout the obama presidency, we have seen a pattern. president obama circumvents congress when he does not get his way. for instance, while congress is currently debating how to reform our immigration laws, the president effectively and acted the dream act himself by ordering immigration officials to stop enforcing immigration laws against certain unlawful immigrants. when he couldn't get his preferred change to the no child left behind education law, he waived testing accountability provisions. when he objected to the work requirement, he granted waivers that are specifically forbidden by the statutory text. instead of w

iran's nuclear program and the uphill battle facing the obama administration. ever since foreign ministers closed the nuclear deal with iran, ten days ago, the obama administration has been trying to win over a skeptical congress and stave off new sanctions. today, wendy sherman, the lead u.s. negotiator in geneva, held a closed briefing today for members of the house. republican trent franks of arizona is among the lawmakers who have called the agreement a bad deal. >> seems like there's general notion that we're afraid to allow iran to question our sincerity when we should be questioning theirs. iran has given no concession of any kind for 30 years. and yet we are now taking some of our most powerful inducements off the table. >> ifill: michigan democrat dan kildee was milder in his criticism, but he said the u.s. has to proceed very carefully. >> we have to be very cautious with this state, and very skeptical and realize that the reason that we're in the position we're in right now, is that the sanctions are working, and the sanctions need to be not just seen only as a penalt

obama. >> now, if congress refuses to act, i've said that i'll continue to do everything in my power to act without them. >> reporter: it's a pledge the president has repeatedly made and kept. from administrative directives to law enforcement officers, telling them not to arrest or deport the vast majority of those in the u.s. illegally to major rewrites of the affordable care act via speeches or the white house blog, president obama has grown increasingly willing to use the powers of the executive branch to effect major changes without ever going through congress. jonathan turley, a supporter of the president and his policies calls the trend troubling. >> the problem with what the president is doing is he's not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system, he's becoming the very danger the constitution was designed to avoid, that is the concentration of power in any single branch. >> reporter: other constitutional experts argue that president obama is carrying out his constitutional duties to take care that the laws be faithfully executed by revising obama care in ways that w
starts right now. and welcome to "hannity." the obama administration and its left wing lackeys are trying to re-launch the disastrous program on the health care law. but unfortunately, the damage is done. we're now learning more about the security risks associated with this website. now listen to what david kennedy, the so-called white hat hacker, talk about the development. >> when they created this website they kind of threw a lot of things together, mixed and matched a bunch of parts putting it on the site to be used by the general public. so when you have that type of website it is actually hard to go back and fix that security around it because the security was not built into it. so it will take months to address, over a year possibly to at least the critical exposures. >> no security in mind when they built the website? that is pretty disturbing. now, unfortunately, there is more to come. according to a report in "the washington post," the enrollment records for millions who have chosen to enroll in the on-line marketplace, continue to generate errors in the computer system, meaning
flagrantly and dangerously unconstitutional. >> is quite a difficult question. the obama administration's office of legal counsel memo on this is quite strained so they are reaching for analogies and analysis that is quite unconvincing, i would say. >> mr. lazarus. >> i'm very, very far from an expert on these matters, but i would just offer one observation. why is, i do not really see the american citizenship issue in the case that the congressman congressman is referring to. if a nazi general happened to be an american citizen it would not alter the way we could do with him militarily. there are questions about the president's authority to implement a drone program. have a nextlly review on that. it has been effective militarily so that is a good thing. >> i will associate myself with professor turley's comments. thank you and i appreciate the opportunity to ask some questions here. helpoing to ask for your in answering what is the number one question i get at town hall meetings and people running up to me at the grocery store when i am back home in texas. they go something like this.
. this is what the obama administration is all about. this is what this president is about. this is, i think, why people voted for him. he cares about those who are interested in having the american dream. while the conservatives continually want to whittle it away. joining me now, rapid response panel, washington bureau chief of mother jones.com, and msnbc political analyst, david corn with us tonight. also, ruth conniff of the progressive magazine in wisconsin. great to have both of you with us. i want to talk about this. income inequality and upward mobility, ruth. and here are the republicans, not saying the word, but this is really all about the president is really not executing the laws faithfully in the united states. >> well, i'm with you, ed. i think it's great to hear the president talk about raising the minimum wage and it's exactly what the republicans don't want to talk about. which is why they really try very hard to avoid a vote on that, where they have to go out in public and express their opposition to it. enormously popular. a lot of folks on economic hard times and it's unjust,
, if you know them, give police a call. >>> second now on the affordable care act. the obama administration says nearly 30,000 people have signed up for coverage on healthcare.gov during the first two days of december. the numbers come after a site relaunch and surpasses signups during the entire month of october. but as danielle nottingham explains, if those numbers don't include a significant number of young people, it could spell trouble for the entire health care law. >> reporter: president obama is pushing to get more young people to sign up for health insurance. >> for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. it's going to be you. >> reporter: stopping by a white house youth summit, the president encouraged young adults to show their friends how to enroll. jessica brown is spreading the word on college campuses. >> young people are an important group among the uninsured. they're actually the largest bloc of uninsured. >> reporter: republicans held four separate hearings on the health care law wednesday and explored whether young peo
. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has secured here in washington, the gap in the highway trust fund has been growing and conditions of our roads, bridges and transit systems have been deteriorating. this puts america at a competitive disadvantage, complicates the movement of goods and people and contributes to congestion and pollution. at the same time, the needs grow, the resources are in significant decline. the gas tax has not been increased since the clinton administration 20 years ago. the future prospects are even worse. demands are increasing and deferred maintenance takes its toll while we watch the bottom fall out of the highway trust fund. we've seen a slowdown in revenue due to the near collapse of the economy, a shift in driving patterns while p

is it like to be a cabinet secretary in the obama administration? >> guest: as glen's reporting indicates, it's a signup for the duty is almost by definition accept a certain amount of frustration and disappointment. and particularly frustration and disappointment if you were one of the cab net officers that believed the storyline that president obama worked very hard. it was going to be a team of rival that captivated by doris goodwin's book on lincoln. and he was talking in ways that made us think there might be a revival of cabinet-based government. if so, that would have been a departure from the trend the last 50 years which increasingly centralized it. it turned out he didn't have in mind a departure. in fact it's the most centralized in to my mind insulated west wing since the nixon years. and as we have done the new chief of staff has tried to moderate that a little bit. he's been aggressive in outreach and make the cab innocent members feel more enlisted. they're not enlisted. they have an ton my and ev

administration wants to take us on. >> the level of naivete that barack obama has shown regarding iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability begs my ability to articulate. >> those comments are down right dovish compared to the opinion of one other member of their party. >> i think if you have to hit iran, you don't put boots on the ground, you do it with tactical nuclear devices and set them back a decade or two or three. >> right. because the way to stop one country from going nuclear is to nuke them. coming up is the power fading for one political money machine behind stand your ground laws? but first, indeed, it's always 5:00 somewhere. so be sure to tip your bartender. >> if you're a bartender, have a happy hour. and also probably get health insurance, because a lot of bartenders don't have it. ♪ >>> ordinary folks can't write massive campaign checks or higher, high-priced lobbyists and lawyers to secure policies that tilt the playing field in their favor at everyone else's expense. and so people get the bad taste that the system is rigged. >> the role of money and interest groups in
? >> well, i think obama administration has done an excellent job of sending very clear signals about its interests in maintaining stability in the region, and standing by its ally japan. both the secretary of state and the secretary of defense made official statements # something that doesn't happen all that often and of course we did send the b52s through as well, and the u.s. presence and our forceful response to china's unilateral actions i think has prevented a much worse kind of crisis, because if we had not been there, then perhaps the japanese would have felt they had to react more strongly, the chinese would have reacted to that and things could have spun out of control. >> but this has been bubbling for a while, i want to continue with you for a moment, susan shirk and yet now we have this action. was it purposefully provocative on china's part? >> well, actually, i am kind of puzzled about the timing. we certainly believe that shiping must have personally approved it but coming so shortly on the heals of the announcement of china's reform blueprint that just a few weeks ago we

. some of the concern comes along with the obama administration. he's well into his second term. you know, for many he doesn't seem to have that zip, the spark he had during the first term. >> politics, there's always a string attached. the implications down the road, we'll look at the midterm elections next year and, of course, 2016. >> yeah, there could be big ones. the 2014 midterm elections could be costly for the democrats here, especially in state legislative races where you may remember they'll try to hold on to the very precious 2/3 majority which is neutralized republicans. also, with less enthusiasm among key constituencies, there will be a few congressional seats in play in northern california as well, like jerry mcnerney and john garamendi come to mind. critical seats for those folks. then there's the 2016 presidential election. the big one. with these numbers, republicans may want to invest here which at minimum will force democrats to defend their turf and spend money that they might have spent elsewhere here instead. so, yeah, you say 2014, it's a year away, but you know wh
the beijing sea. >>> the obama administration says it is prepared to allow iran to engage in a limited nuclear enrichment program. but that applies only to the nation's peaceful energy needs. in a statement released tuesday, the white house says it will negotiate with tehran as long as it holds up its end of the agreement to curtail its nuclear capabilities under tight oversight. this is the first time the u.s. has explicitly said that iran has the right to enrich. >>> yasser arafat was not the victim of poisoning according to tests by french forensic scientists. that contradicts a report. they found he was killed by radioactive polonium. >> this will not put the conspiracy theorys to rest. >>> eight minutes after the hour. coming up, a celebrity chef in a heated courtroom battle. did two sisters steal millions from thnigella lawson? we're live in london. >>> an incredible rescue. a man trapped for days underwater. >> this sais an amazing video. tweet us the "early start" rhyme if you rhyme with jacoby ellsbury. #morningrhy #morningrhyme. tap of my geico app. oh, that's so cool. well, i would
and younger people. but people in the know are saying the obama administration's goal for this is not going to happen. martha: that's the backdrop and you have got a defiant president saying no retreat and no surrender and the issue of obamacare. he launched a 20-day p.r. blitz to try to get americans signed up. >> i always said i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law. if you have got good ideas, bring them to me, let's go. but we are not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> this bill is fundamentally flawed. causing people to lose the doctor of their choice, causing them to lose their health plan and they are having to pay much higher prices at the same time. bill: i talked to congressman kevin mccarthy and i asked him about the new accusations about the republican party, about obstructionism. we'll play that interview and you will hear his answer how the gop will fight back on that charge. martha: some strong word on capitol hill from constitutional law professors of which the president used to be one. they called the president out for what they see as overstepping
for insurance now that healthcare.gov's doing better. but republicans say numbers are nowhere near the obama administration's targets. we'll get a live update from capitol hill. >>> plus, there's a new poll that shows younger people are apparently not all that crazy about the president's health care law or his job performance. we'll take a look at those numbers coming up on the fox news deck. stay with us. >>> fox report here on the news line desk. wildlife workers say they used donuts to trap a bear near the scene of an attack in florida. they said yesterday they were going to do it, apparently worked. they're checking to see if it's the animal that mauled a woman in orlando. the woman is in the hospital with traumatic injuries as they put it. all the coins that passengers leave behind at tsa check points could soon be going to a good cause. the house passed the bill to give that money to military charities. tsa reports it collects more than half a million dollars in loose change a year. right now the law lets agency keep that cash. and a restaurant in texas now closed until next week for w
anytime. just a tap away on the geico app. >>> right now the obama administration scrambling to work around what would allow insurance companies to get paid come january 1st. some are calling this fix actually a bailout by guestmation. jamie weinstein here to explore how something could turn ugly very, very fast. what's going on here, jamie? >> well, this is the latest of the parade of horribles from the obama care rollout. government is never very efficient, but this is like a third world despotism. we're told they fixed the front end of the obama care website. they haven't even built the backen yet, which is the part -- back end yet, which is the part where you pay insurance companies the premium you get. the government is telling insurance companies that we pay you, just guesstimate how much we owe in terms of subsidies for those who are eligible for subsidies, and we'll give that to you. then we'll settle the deal sometime down the road whether we paid you too little or too much. but as you can imagine, neil, i very -- it's unlikely that insurance companies are going to say that
're in the bull pen. >> and speaking of health care, the obama administration is trying to highlight the fixes within the enrollment site, but insurance company leaders are still voicing concerns of whether the right information is ending up with providers. speaking of people who need health care right now, example one. first of all, is the -- are the fixes that we've seen, more enrollments, a better experience for people signing on, is that enough? are you still worried about what's going to happen january 1st when people try to, you know, believe that they have signed up for insurance? is the match going to work? is the insurance industry getting the information they need? >> first off, thank you for having me on. you're raising some very important questions. the administration has made a lot of progress in getting healthcare.gov working better for consumers. so they're able to get through the system and actually choose a plan. that's a good thing. we want to make sure consumers can be able to see their options and get through the system. at the same time, we need to make sure that the back
of unionization. so we haven't really had that discussion. during the obama administration we haven't because of the constant barrage of republican attacks on anything that the president did. so he hasn't had the opportunity to do this narrative that really sort of speaks to who he is as a politici politician. but now he's getting the opportunity. >> and i think it's really worth pointing out that the minimum wage -- and steve cole says this better than i do or will. i will read what he wrote, which is, it is not an entitlement program. it's much harder to be against a raise in the minimum wage if you're a conservative for these reasons. it's always been in part civic and moral. minimum wages do not create new entitlement programs or otherwise enjoin the country's sterile debates about the value of government. they're designed to ensure that the dignity of work includes true economic independence for all who embrace it. the president recalled the words of adam smith and said, for those of you that don't speak english, if you work hard, you should make a decent living. that's a conservative pr
of the core curriculum? is that something certainly the obama administration has been pushing. is that something you support? >> yeah. there's been a lot of confusion, i would say sometimes misinformation about the common core. but it's a far more rigorous standard than what has been used in most of the states. it allows states to pool resources for people like khan academy to cater to more folks. it's much more about the conceptual understanding of core ideas as to opposed to going through a superficial way many ideas. modelled over standards like singapore. so i think it's a positive. >> so what needs time prove ho here? clearly it's not just an issue of money i assume? >> no. not just an issue of money. and at the kahn academy we try to take a step back. it is interesting to look at the pisa scores, to see where these countries rank. but it's also important to kind of take a step back from that. because even while our scores have kind of been middling and sometimes declining up, the level of innovation in the u.s. has been accelerating. if you asked anyone in the world what
